CCNW was asked by Wain Estates to provide the surveying, identification, mapping and remediation strategy of Invasive Species within the Carrington Estate. 

Managing land containing invasive species such as Japanese Knotweed in a timely and appropriate way can avoid: 

Harm to the environment and loss of biodiversity
An offence in law, resulting in potential prosecution and/or compensation claims
Physical damage to buildings and hard surfaces
Excessive cost and development delay
Devaluation of property and land
Loss of amenity
Financial institutions refusing to provide a mortgage or building insurance 

The 500-ha Carrington Estate is varied and comprises brownfield land, farmland, mixed deciduous woodland, industrial units and commercial property. Parts of the site border the River Mersey and a section of the Trans Pennine Trail. Additionally, it includes the 2.5ha Carrington Moss Site of Biological Importance, Birch Moss ecological mitigation site and the Shell Nature Reserve, adding ecological considerations.
